***on the homefront***
Yesterday was grocery shopping day! yay!  Love bringing all that fresh new food in the house!  When we shop, we 'conquer' the store, we split up and get everything on the list and finish in less than an hour!  At home, we sort, divide and cook whatever food we can...and we're all set for the week!  Since the day is usually busy we have taco night, that's pretty easy to pull together!  And I make a homemade dessert!  The kids wanted to try spray frosting (its in a whip cream type of can), so we made cupcakes, and had a bit of fun squirting the frosting on!  lol   awww, making memories!   I am truly blessed with four wonderful kids, three teens & a preteen.  how cool is that?!!!
And now that the meals are organized, I can spend more time crafting!  ....my ultimate goal of course!  lol

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
Praying peace, joy and much love over you!

Gorgeous card Maria. I love that image, and how you layered it with the "print" designer paper. Looks amazing.
Gorgeous striped designer paper too!

Grocery Shopping is my least favorite shopping trips, probably because I do not enjoy to cook. But I keep telling myself that one of these days I will visit cooking forums on a daily basis to get inspired LOL. (It does help my stamping mojo so maybe it'll do the same with cooking)
